With a plethora of shows to choose from in the New York City area this New Years Eve, there had to be some difficulty for people to choose which party to go to. But those that were smart and fortunate enough to attend Joonbug's New Years Eve party at Pier 36, were in for an amazing night, and we're not just saying that because it was our party! DJ Mag was right when they rated this party as #1 in the country for NYE. It truly was an experience that only happens once a year.
From the very entrance of the venue, you could feel the energy to quickly build into something euphoric. With Michelle Francheska opening the show, everything was fallling right into place. The venue was very spacious, the sound system was spectacular (extremely loud, yet still clear), the massive stage and video screen, the 3-hour incluseive open bar was top knotch as well. All the elements were set for what was going to be one of the best nights of the year.
Showtek is getting ready to play at the biggest New Years show in New York, hosted by the one and only Joonbug.com. The duo has also just released an absolute banger to celebrate their the launching of their new record label, Skink Records. "We Like To Party" is outrageous and will have people going nuts this Tuesday night! Stream it below, and get your copy of it now at Beatport.
Although one of the smallest events in the EDC franchise, which boasts six annual festivals across the globe, EDC Orlando glowed as one of Insomniac Events’ largest success stories. The festival’s brilliantly-planned layout left no room for noise bleed between the three stages, allowing each structure to blare crisp, undisturbed sound from its towering speakers.
It's the moment everyone has been waiting for-- the lineup announcement has been made for Joonbug.com's highly anticipated Pier 36 NYE 2014 party! In a lineup crafted by the EDM Heavens,Cedric Gervais, R3hab, Sander van Doorn, Showtek, and Tommy Trash will grace the stage as we welcome 2014 with a wild bang. It's a night you will have to EXPIERIENCE for yourself.
In 2012, Joonbug welcomed deadmau5 to the stage, and 2013 saw Armin van Buuren take front and center. Legendary parties in their own right, they had the nation talking and wanting more. Ergo, this year we are upping the ante, giving the people exactly what the people want, and then some, by offering a whole lot more. Additionally, the venue boasts a massive dance floor, perfect for dancing the night away. There will be a live countdown on stage--but don't worry, the party will continue to rage long after the midnight hour.
Life In Color Festival made its debut in the nation's capital this past weekend, and we used the rainy weather as an excuse to hide out in the artist trailers. Not only did we meet cool people, artists, and have the luxury of eating free Pizza Hut pizza, but we also had the chance to speak with Dutch duo, Showtek. Apparently the trailer we interviewed them in was actually R3hab's, and at some point while talking to them, Fadil walked in and told us to get out of his trailer (jokingly of course). We spoke to Sjoerd and Wouter about what it's like producing music together as brothers, and whether or not they get into arguments. It was also important to bring up their massive change in style over the years, and how they got to where they are today. Read on to see what they had to say!
Nikki Beach’s Miami Music Week lineup just got a serious facelift—in addition to the previously announced Juicy Beach extravaganza, the iconic beach club will play host to Spinnin’ Records’ first ever MMW label showcase “Spinnin’ Sessions.”
The label has already announced massive headliners such as Cedric Gervais and Showtek for the March 20th soiree, with three surprise guests still remaining a mystery. And if you closely examine the imprint’s star-studded roster, you’ll realize that any surprise acts will be well worth a ticket.
For the past 5 years, Showtek, otherwise known to family and friends as Wouter and Sjoerd Janseen, have been rapidly rising in the electronic dance music realm. From touring all over the world, to having their production in a movie, to working with talents like Tiesto and Hardwell, it’s no wonder that they were part of the Identity Festival lineup this year. Whether they are in the studio or behind the decks, the Dutch brothers are really creating a name for themselves among some of the biggest DJs and producers out there. We had a chance to sit down with the guys at the sold-out Identity Festival in New York, as they dished what the festival has been like so far, what it’s been like to work with Tiesto, and all about their brand new track with Hardwell, “How We Do."
Another year, another Identity Festival in the books for New Yorkers. This past weekend, thousands of EDM enthusiasts from all over the tri-state area packed out the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach in Wantagh, New York, to capacity, for a full day and night of colorful neon clothing, dancing, raging, and of course the non-stop booming beats from some very talented EDM artists. This year, the festival had quickly sold out, making it a highly anticipated event for all those attending. The 2012 New York line-up was packed with some highly sought after talent including headliner Eric Prydz, Arty, Madeon, Showtek, Eva Simons, and Noisia, among a list of others.
